All rights reserved.The flow structure inside a pressure swirl atomizer is investigated using high-speed shadowgraphy techniques and computational fluid dynamics tools. The hollow cone spray properties are detected using Phase Doppler Particle Analyzer. The experimental and numerical results are analyzed and compared. The aircore inside the pressure swirl atomizer is visualized at high temporal and spatial resolutions with the high-speed shadowgraphy system. The images captured are analyzed quantitatively with a developed image processing tool. The analyses reveal strong fluctuations of the aircore diameter. Three dimensional and two dimensional axisymmetric-swirl models are used for the numerical study performed with ANSYS-FLUENT software. Unsteady, two phase laminar flows are computed using the volume of fluid method. Three-dimensional and two-dimensional numerical simulations also predict strong oscillations of aircore diameter near the base of swirl chamber. In addition, a two-component Phase Doppler Particle Analyzer is employed to investigate the spray properties.


Effective connectivity modeling of human brain
Ulusoy, İlkay (null; 2017-11-25)
Three different connectivity models, namely structural (anatomical links), functional (statistical dependencies), and effective (causal interactions) have been introduced to examine the interactions between different regions of the brain. To understand the interactive systems, it is of fundamental importance to distinguish the sender from the receiver, and hence to be able to estimate the direction of the information flow. Effective connectivity methods estimate direct and/or indi...
Spectroscopic ellipsometry study of Bi12TiO20 single crystals
Isik, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Darvishov, N. H.; Bagiev, V. E. (2021-02-01)
Bi12XO20 (X: Si, Ge, Ti, etc.) ternary compounds have attracted attention especially due to their fascinating photorefractive characteristics. The present paper introduces the structural and optical characteristics of Bi12TiO20 single crystals grown by Czochralski method. X-ray diffraction pattern of the compound exhibited sharp and intensive peaks corresponding to parallel planes of cubic crystalline structure. The lattice constant of the cubic structure was determined as a = 1.0118 nm using a diffraction ...
Implementation of ball-center spring analogy mesh deformation technique with CFD design optimization
Yang, Yosheph; Özgen, Serkan (2015-01-01)
© 2015, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved.Mesh deformation technique plays an important role in several numerical simulations and applications including design optimization. This paper aims to implement the developed unstructured mesh deformation technique for CFD Design Optimization around 2-D Airfoils. During the optimization procedure, the newly deformed mesh is generated by using the updated Ball-Center Spring analogy mesh deformation technique. The compar...
Temperature-tuned bandgap characteristics of Bi12TiO20 sillenite single crystals
Isik, M.; Delice, S.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Darvishov, N. H.; Bagiev, V. E. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-11-01)
Bi12MO20 (M: Si, Ge, Ti, etc.) compounds are known as sillenites having fascinating photorefractive characteristics. The present paper reports the structural and optical characteristics of one of the members of this family, Bi12TiO20 single crystals, grown by Czochralski method. X-ray diffraction pattern of the crystal presented sharp and intensive peaks associated with planes of cubic crystalline structure with lattice constant of a = 1.0142 nm. The optical properties were studied by means of room temperat...
Investigation of subcellular localization of a yellow rust pathogen effector candidate
Andaç, Ayşe; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Department of Biotechnology (2013)
Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici is one of the fungal pathogens, which causes one of the most disruptive diseases of wheat called, stripe rust, in many parts of the world. Because of their highly destructive character, Puccinia species including yellow rust are responsible for considerable yield losses in worldwide wheat production. Despite its economic importance, the genomics of the pathogens and the plant-pathogen interactions have not been identified yet. For sustainable control of this plant disease...
